      They use batteries.
      I always plug in USBs right the first time.

      I wear a G daily for work (bridge inspection), and you can't beat it.

      Mine's a GW2000BD, your 6900 is sharp though!

      I wear a G-Shock as my work watch, Field Construction Engineer. They're great watches and you can't kill them.

      i also love the black and lime green.

      got this for xmas to replace my other g shock from 7 years ago.

      the band will wear out long before the watch does.

      No watch collection is complete without a G-Shock.

      All time favourite is the all titanium Frogman.

      kinda neat. Unless its direct sunlight, the display is almost unreadable...(stealth?)

      you Have to push the light button to read the display.
      different/quirky... I like it.

      Actually this is a Frogman
      My white GW206K
      What separates the FROGMAN from 99% of the rest of the G-Shock range, is the full titanium case and screw back which reside under that hunk of polyurethane. All other G-Shock's feature a plastic/resin case with a metal plate black that is secured to the plastic case 4 via screws. After a few batter changes, the resin threads tend to strip.
      The Frogman is also the only G-Shock that is a true ISO certified diver.

      Titanium screw back....

      I'm currently thinking about either:



      or



      Model numbers GA 100-1A1 and GA 110C-7A respectively. But they are kinda hard to find in real stores to check out.

      I've got one too. I wear it at the gym, or when I'm on the golf course. I like knowing that it can take some abuse and still be there. I dont have to worry about dinging it, scratching a crystal, or messing up a movement through shocks or bumps.

      I'm stoked! My Casio G-Force GDF100 is arriving later this week!
      I haven't owned a watch since early high school, and I've kept my eye on the G-Force models. I'm a huge science nerd, so the thermometer/barometer/altimeter built into the watch is pretty dope IMO.

      Yea I've seen one of those. Very attractive watch.

    29. 05-02-2011 11:14 PM #29
      i had one quite some time ago..........it looked great had the functions but in the end it was bulky and I beat the sh*T out of it and it fell apart......never replaced it.......
      I get better use but less functions with basic swatch watches
